Punk Professor Confesses: Iggy’s Touch May Have Saved My Life! Danny Fields interviews Maria Damon - I had the pleasure of meeting Maria Damon on February 9, 2011 at Patti Smith and Lenny Kaye's 40th anniversary performance at the Poetry Project at St. Marks Church. She’s a poetry scholar—so it turns out we had a few friends in common—but imagine my bigger surprise when she told me she was a huge Please Kill Me fan and that our book was a major factor in inspiring her to teach a course on Punk Literature at the University of Minnesota. - Gillian
PLEASE KILL ME: THE PLAY in Paris. Can I just say that I LOVE France? Legs can bash it all he wants—he’s the only person I know who doesn’t LIKE french fries—but he’s probably never been there and if he has he was on the road with the Scorpions or some other travesty of a band. And/or drunk. And lets just say that he’d pick a Ring Ding over a freshly baked croissant any day.
